“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those involved in the crash,” Pelham PD said in a press release. “We would like to thank the witnesses who stopped and provided valuable information to the investigation. We would also like to thank the public for their patience and understanding during the period of time we closed Pelham Parkway in order to conduct our investigation.”

Names of those involved are being withheld until family members can be contacted.
